To demonstrate how to deploy a WhatsApp Bot with Code Capsules, we’ve provided an example bot, which you can find on the Code Capsules GitHub repository.
Sign in to GitHub, and fork the example bot repository by clicking “Fork” at the top-right of your screen and selecting your GitHub account as the destination.
Log in to your Code Capsules account and navigate to the “Spaces” tab. Once there, click the yellow
+ icon on the top right of the screen to add a new Space.
Follow the prompts, choosing your region and giving your Space a name, then click “Create Space”.
Example instructions to go with numbered annotations, 1.

If you’re already using a specific cloud, you can choose that here, otherwise pick anyone.
A Capsule provides the server for hosting an application on Code Capsules.
To create a new Capsule for your space, follow the instructions below:
Code Capsules will automatically build your application when you’ve finished creating the Capsule.
Once your application is live, you can view the build log by selecting the “Deploy” tab and clicking the “View build log” link in the “Builds” section.
The Twilio Sandbox provides a development environment to access the WhatsApp API. Sign up for a Twilio account to use a sandbox that allows you to test your bot in real-time. After you’ve logged into your Twilio account, navigate to the console page to configure your WhatsApp sandbox settings.
/botto the end of it. Make sure the method is set to HTTP Post.
The bot will now be able to respond to your messages after sending the join code. Try it, and the bot should echo any message you send it.
If you’d like to deploy another application in a different language or framework, take a look at our other deployment guides.
